Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence
Above: “computer brains” and “machine learning” doesn’t exist. And probably never will.

Dear readers and customers,

the professional field of IT is a foggy sector sometimes. You will encounter more buzzwords than anywhere else throughout your career, most of them will loose their meaning entirely during the same timeframe, and what’s even more worse: you leave humans in anger and fear more times than it can be healthy for both sides, clients as well as customers. We need to actively change that for the better.

As such, and seeing it from a linguistic perspective too, renaming terminology is the way to go. And we fully support the idea provided by the Center on Privacy and Technology: reducing actively, or even eliminating where possible, the damage caused by digital technology.

One of the most popular and best examples: artificial intelligence. Today, 2022, even the most sophisticated supercomputers only provide the intelligence of a cockroach. Or more realistically: a network of cockroaches. As such, the center recommends eliminating this terminology completely. We fully support that one as well as the other mentioned buzzwords computers aren’t capable of: which is “thinking”. “Judging”. “Predicting”. “Interpreting”. “Decision making”. “Realising”. “Learning”. Humans and animals may be capable of all that. But no computer on this Earth, and possibly for many decades to come. Period.

If you encounter these associations somewhere, online or offline, be aware that you might be a victim of a creative marketing department. Nothing more, nothing less. “Artificial intelligence” doesn’t exist, not in the sense of the programmer Alan Turing, who invented the concept of turing completeness. Even more so as mentioned in the valuable and much more creative novels by authors of science fiction literature, who might be able to describe sentient artificial beings, maybe even their hypothetical behaviour. However it stays a fiction in any case, no matter how great the novel was you were reading. Sorry.

For us at AETHYX MEDIAE, this idea proposed by the Center on Privacy and Technology sounds like a no-brainer. However we are not free of bias as we have roots and work in this professional field since over two decades now. We’re sad that news agencies and journalists are not capable to reduce the damage before it reaches their readers. As it is in their responsibility to do their own research before making an article popular and publishing it to thousands of concurrent readers. As such, the warning and the proposal comes to late for us. For the year 2022 as well as for millions of people on this planet. Plus, we were also not safe sometimes to use misleading technology terminology. We need and want to apologise for that. And promise to change it for the better where we see fit.

Be proud to be human! Have no fear of IT! Keep thinking! As in the end, it’s just another field where people need to pay their rents from.

All the best,
the aethyx staff

Inflation

Dear readers and customers,

currently, due to an “unusual” high inflation in the eurozone, we need to increase prices for all our products. Sry!

All of our services (except our merchandise) will now be minimum 10% more expensive than in the past.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience but the current situation didn’t leave us any other choice.

We’re not sure if this is the end, too. Could be this is only the first round of increases. Let’s see how the current political world situation as well as the pandemic develops.

We hope for the best, still!

Thank you for using our products! Rock on and stay indie!

Take care and best wishes,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers and customers,

for the second time in our 12 year company history I speak to you here directly as CEO. The last time only two years ago because of the still ongoing pandemic. The necessities of our current times leave me no other choice. At the moment, I don’t really know how we should do here “business as usual”.

Currently, there’s a war going on in Europe. It’s now day 9 of this war.

It’s an unfair war, it’s a war built up on lies. That’s the case with any war, throughout human history. We don’t support wars, we never did, never will.

In fact, I’m a member of the German Peace Society. I feel it as my duty to at least inform you about this and provide some help. So please watch the video above carefully and if you want to help I want to provide some links and information today which might come in handy in case you want to join the help.

If you are in the war zone, actions you can take in case of explosion and about clean water:

  • lie on the ground and cover your head with your hands
  • use available shelter
  • help the wounded
  • do not enter damaged buildings
    In the absence of water supply:
  • take drinking water from pumping stations, wells, mine wells, drinking water bottling points
  • for drinking and cooking – boil for at least 10 minutes
  • store water in closed containers
  • water from open reservoirs – only for technical purposes
    That’s what’s currently distributed through Ukrainian mobile networks. Please also update yourself from time to time through reliable English news sources if possible, like BBC, Guardian UK or CNN, to get news about safe corridors.

If you are in Europe or elsewhere, actions you might take from here:

With our strength and knowledge combined, maybe we have a chance to prevent the worst. For Ukraine, as well as for the rest of the world.

Be brave and strong,
may peace eventually prevail,
Sascha Schroeder
CEO & Founder
AETHYX MEDIAE

[Update I, 03/14/22]
Added the latest hint about water from the Ukrainian mobile networks; removed the Anonymous hint as our local Chaos Computer Club added that supporting black and/or grey hat hacking is simply too dangerous.

Splitter: Symbolbild
Above: just a visual representation, not the actual report. Find details below

Dear readers and customers,

information is the currency of the current century. Demand will surpass that of oil soon enough.

As such, we are proud to announce a new product line as of now: we call them splitters!

What is a splitter?

A splitter is:
* an investment report about an NFT project
* inside, we present you on five slides in a compact and readable form if the NFT project you are interested in is worth investing
* available as PPT or PDF. Or both
* unique: you name us the NFT. We do research and analysis about it and put it into those reports
* only 99€/splitter

Why should you trust us?

You mean, despite we are an indie publishing house from inside the EU knowing the web from A to Z since 22 years now? Here’s a quick timeline:

2013/2014: we mine Bitcoin through ASICs
2014: we accept Bitcoin and support it on all our projects
2017: we get our first Ethereum address and start investing in Ether. This cryptocurrency was only worth 500-600€ at that time
2017: we launch https://kryptowiki.eu/, the one and only cryptocurrency wiki for German speaking countries (Germany, Switzerland, Austria – 100+ million native speakers here). Bitcoin was worth only 2,237€ at that specific time
Also 2017: we launch https://kryptogeld.io/, a cryptocurrency startup
2018: we launch an Android companion app for Kryptowiki. Same year: we support Ethereum and create open-source projects for it
2019: we observe the NFT market closely via https://opensea.io. We don’t own NFTs yet
2021: we own NFTs. Same year: we sell official merchandise with our NFT artwork
2022: we do splitters and sell them for 99€ per report, so you know if you should invest in an NFT or not. It’s our way to do serious NFT consultancy

Where can I get my splitter?

It’s easy, as always: just hit us up via info@aethyx.eu. Payment is possible via the usual payment methods (PayPal, Bitcoin, Ether, IBAN, etc.).

We’re AETHYX MEDIAE, we’re here to help!
Anything related about the WWW, just drop us a line!
We go ahead while others don’t know what to do!

Stay safe and hope to hear from you soon,
the aethyx staff

Cape Reinga, New Zealand

Dear readers and customers,

Happy New Year! Stay healthy, much success, and good luck for you and your friends and family of course!

Let’s start the New Year with a recommendation about the current state of the Internet and WWW. Plus, why it’s still important what we do in our small, indie, online publishing house:

“The Old Internet Shows Signs of Quietly Coming Back”, by Cheapskates.

The funny part is: what’s stated inside this report and what we still create on the web is valid since we were starting web creation 2000 in general. We never saw it otherwise. As such, the content holds value for us and our credo since over two decades now.

Also don’t let yourself be fooled by the coined term “old Internet”: it’s just how we knew it back in the 90s. Everyone grewing up through these times will remember the mentioned terms and how the internet looked and felt like. Heck, the article even goes back to the Gophernet from the 80s; something we weren’t even able to witness ourselves. But the spirit lives on, that’s why small enterprises like us exist.

All in all, there’s hope on the horizon, as seen in our small eyecatcher above this text. The more people know and live with inventions like the internet, the better they come to an understanding what’s good and what’s bad.

Build your website today, we’ll be happy to help!

Hear from you soon,
the aethyx staff
